years obama did talk about a grand bargain. the republicans tried to meet him halfway. i think the shutdown changed everything. it was such a debacle for the republican party. you know, they had embraced this sort of sabotage approach to nongovernance. i think the assumption was they weren't going to do that again in january. but what they're going to do, what they're going to agree to do, barely there. this mini thing that will get us a few extra months. it's sad this is sort of the state of, quote, budget negotiations. but as obama and democrats have found, when you're negotiating with people who aren't particularly persuadable on anything, you're lucky if you can use sort of a up and down-aid like that. >> kiki, just on the politics of that, i think eric makes a great point. if i'm john boehner and i'm anybody, frankly in the leadership in the republican party, part of my concern is, we've got to have something that i know we are not going to shut the government down over. >> that's right. >> because they know they just cannot handle that another time. those numbers are alre

, i respect what you d and i respect your question. >> in 2008 candidate obama talked about spreading the wealth around. that little clip goes viral, oh, he's this redistributor. but now as you point out, pope francis is, like, yeah, spread the wealth. like i was having this imaginary clay major leagues in my head where joe the plumber asked that same question of pope francis and pope francis said, no, seriously, you have to spread the wealth around. >> another radical, radical christian had that idea, jesus christ. >> that jesus guy. >> look, every major religious tradition, i grew up in the jewish tradition, muslim tradition teaches this, too, that social justice is beyond charity. it is making sure that if you're working hard and playing by the rules, you can get ahead. and those people who are disabled, those people who are seniors, those people who are senior, and that is two-thirds of the food stamp s.n.a.p. caseload that you should be able to eat. this is not some radical idea. this is a mainstream idea that people like bob dole and richard lugar, conservative republicans, adva
not avoid trouble. >> there are a lot of golf analogies we could talk about. ben's right, obama dropped the ball on this. it doesn't surprise me he may have only met with her once beuse he certainly didn't do anything else he needed to do to make this rollout a success. look, obama care, said this before, is a good policy. the implementation is horrific. >> poorly executed. the nebraska senator who's now heading up all these insurance commissioners, he was telling me, i thought it was revealing, that they did wince at the time when the president said, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. i said, i don't remember you saying that at the time. he said, we did relay to the white house, i don't know who in the white house, that this was not feasible. there's a lot of liny covering here. i'm wondering if it's all part of the same story. of not keeping in contact with the health and human services secretary, the secretary not following up on warnings presumably from those in congress who were getting leery, something that could never happen. >> it was a complete failure to commun
at this hour? >> from the speech we saw from president obama, the comments he made, one of the most striking was when the president talked about his own influence, the influence it had on his own life from nelson mandela specifically hisrencing the fact that first political act, his first act of political activism dating back to 1981 was when he helped lead and make a speech at an anti-apartheid rally at occidental college. 19-year-old barack obama with the beginnings and the roots of his political career being inspired by nelson mandela and it talks about the responsibility he feels going forward to emulate and live up to the example that he set. >> who are we hearing from him and he'll? what did they have to say? aboutce the news broke his death, there has been a real out touring of statements from every possible corner of capitol hill to imagine everyone from republicans, democrats, ted , dickmitch mcconnell durbin, nancy pelosi. regardless of political ideology , there is a real outpouring of support and memories in honor of nelson mandela and his contributions. a lot of people talking a
fire. they've got their guys trying to paint cleats and they've got the ravens talking obama care. a more feminized, softer nfl, why don't they put out the bigskin, bring out the nerf ball, play in a bouncy castle and change the name from dallas cowboys because cowboys use guns and the tabby cats and the patriots use guns, something less violent. it's absolutely ridiculous. but the nfl again, more pressure and they're catering to, as you point out, the elitist, media, people who don't even really love football. their fans probably have guns. >> the dallas cowgirls, the cheerleaders do a lot of this. should that stop? >> no, but i sat in for larry king and they had the dallas cowboy cheer leaders. it was the original dallas cowboy cheer leaders. >> they were your age. >> they were. you talk about the free market, they have the right to keep these things the off the air. i wouldn't put the thing on, first of all, it's a lousily produced commercial. secondly, i think you're right. you can put your baby out front and it will catch a bullet? they have a right to do it and i'm glad they
at >>> coming up on "consider this," president obama gives a talk on the economy. why is the man who helped get bin laden behind bars without much hope of getting out. the unique for animal rights, is the move to get chimpanzees personhood status going too far. >> should you think twice before going to a game? we will see you at the top of the hour. >> welcome back. here at the morseem, the work of journalists is chronicled and honored in a number you have visits including one which is a tribute to journalists who have fallen while pursuing their stories. one whose short life has inspired creative work, dan eldon who was raised in kenya. he was all of that, brave and bold and lost in a gruesome assault 20 years ago. then he was just 22. and then, eldon was a photo journalist documenting somalia as things spun out of control. on july 12th, 1993, filing a violent assault, protesters in the streets turned on dan and three colleagues working there. they were beaten and stoned to death. in the two deck it's a since that day, dan's mother, cathy, and his sister, set out to preserve the legacy of his
to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a hospital in mexico for radiation poisoning. think of the timing here becaus
liberals say. >> good to see you, how about that? >> good to see you. so, let's talk about the obama care website. so, what is the reality with this site? of course it's better, right? but the bar was very low before. is it where it needs to be? >> well, no, not quite, but again, again, let's focus on this, compared to the way it was in the disastrous rollout, yeah, it's been a huge improvement, but that's kind of like saying that compared to the other glutenous members of the heneghan family, i didn't eat too much at the thanksgiving dinner, right? the bar is very low. >> right, but is it working in a way now where people can move forward and actually use it to enroll in these programs? >> yes. the vast majority of people will be able to get on the site, sign up for insurance, and we think -- and this last part is just being tested now -- we think that the information we plug in there is going to be accurately reported to the insurance company. so, i would say the water is warm, come ease in, but you know, show a little bit of care when you do. >> today, as we reported, the president is
. the reboot of obama care continues as the president talks about the economic benefits of this law in washington, d.c. yesterday he defended the affordable care act and suggested if the republicans have better ideas they should bring them to the table. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. we are just getting started with the exchanges. just getting started with the market places. we are not going to walk away from it. if i have to fight another three years to make sure the law works, that's what i'll do. i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to know that. >> if what the president just said is true, then that's a marked change from the first time it went through. republicans had scores of amendments that harry reid kill and never let them discuss it on the floor and never got a vote on the floor. if the president now wants to actually work with republicans as well as democrats on the health care b

, but globally and certainly here in the united states. president obama has talked often about nelson mandela. there are several members of congress who on more than one occasion have talked about mandela and the impact he has had not just on politics and life in south africa, but on politics around the world, even here in this country. a nobel peace prize winner. someone who the anti-apartheid movement here in the united states looked to when he was in prison in robin island and other places. his release in 1990 and going on to become the leader of south africa. lot of lessons to be learned from his life. i am waiting word not only from the white house, but the congress and their reaction to the deaths of nelson man -- mandela. >> you did some reporting on president obama's south african trip, where president obama was very mindful of mr. mandela's health. remind the viewers of what president obama did when he went to south africa several months ago? >> well, again, i wasn't on that trip, but there was oncern, some talk even then. nelson mandela was in failing health at that time. that perha
at this cap obama was talking about. we wanted to ask is there a specific segment in the population responsible for widening this cap or is this a current running through the economy? 18-24 years old 265 and up. these folks see an increase of the income gap if you compare with 20 years ago with today. there are a number of reasons why. you can put it into three different categories. first is demographic. this is a different country that was years ago. if you look at the number of immigrants with enter the country. a million or so every single year. they tend to make a little bit less than the native population. secondly, increase the amount of women who are the main breadwinner's for their households. one thing worth noting here is women still make less on average than men. dennis: it brings numbers down making the gap look worse than it otherwise would be. dennis: custody question, why is it worth the widening gap among 35-44-year-olds. >> is one thing about this population. these are the folks who are just about to enter their prime earning years. i am in this group. 40s-50s earni
